DESPISTADO [I]THE EMERGENCY RESPONSE[/I] REVIEW
(8 OUT OF 10)
This four-piece hailing from Saskatchewan will appeal to the fans of angular and harmony filled songs ala At the Drive-in, and this six song EP is just the beginning. I found that upon first listen I was a little skeptical of whether or not I liked this record, but after repeated listens I knew that it was a truly unique and indispensable first effort by a band that is not afraid of challenging the boundaries of indie rock. The Emergency Response will strike you the way that Milemarker does and aggressively move you like At the Drive-In used to. A rhythmically complex and melodic record that will hopefully show up some of the new and supposedly "amazing" bands out there posing.
